A Cumulative Flow Diagram is a visual summary of the information contained on the Scrum Wall, Task Board, or Kanban Wall. A Cumulative Flow Diagram differs from a Burnup in that it tracks work through all of its states. It’s useful because it can help spot bottlenecks and trends, but don’t confuse a Cumulative Flow Diagram or other measurement with the real world. A measurement is just a hint to go find out what is really happening.
